LOVE This build. Flies so smooth and packs a huge punch. These motors are crazy powerful!
I plan on upgrading ESCs soon because right now I have 3 racerstar ESCs and a DYS ESC in there.

How do you like this frame ? does it hold up well in crashes and does it seem durable?

fish   Aug 24, 2017 

The frame is amazing. I forgot to set up a failsafe and I lost connection and it throttled straight into the ground and it was completely fine. Also made from some of the highest quality carbon fiber that I have used, so yes, extremely durable. Its also well balanced and flies super smooth with my setup.

What about the build quality is it chamfered or not from the pictures it doesn't appear to be on their website.

It isn't chamfered but it is pre finished nicely so there is no need to file which I like. There is also the option to add a seal on the edge in clear or any color you would want.

Huh I guess when I responded a couple weeks ago it didnt save... But no, unfortunately not my plane. I was working the MultiGP booth at an Air Show and there were planes all over and I figured it would make a cool picture!

Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
